FUE technique is used in eyebrow transplantation. The procedure is completed under local anesthesia within 3 to 4 hours. The roots collected from the neck during eyebrow transplantation are used. Transplant roots should be transplanted at a certain angle from a certain direction. The current angle on hair follicles is 45 degrees. However, roots are removed from the skin at an average angle of 10-15 degrees during eyebrow transplantation. Eyebrow transplantation should therefore be performed by specialists.
HOW IS EYEBROW TRANSPLANTATION PERFORMED?
There are some issues to be considered when making a search for the procedure. Two techniques are used for eyebrow transplantation. One of the first and oldest techniques is FUT. This technique is frequently used in hair transplantation process. However, it is not used in beard and eyebrow transplantation. Therefore, the person who performs eyebrow transplantation must know the FUE method. The FUE technique was first introduced in 2003. FUE is the most successful solution for hair and eyebrow transplantation. It is possible to get the most natural result through this method. There is not any institution providing FUE training. Therefore, the number of experts familiar with this technique is quite limited.
In the eyebrow transplantation technique, the hair to be planted is collected from the neck. The procedure is not different in hair, eyebrow and beard transplantation. In all transplantation procedures, the hair to be used is obtained from the human body. Eyebrow transplantation is performed through the individual’s own hair. For this purpose, a 1 cm area on the nape of the neck is shortened by shaving. Hair roots to be transplanted from the designated area are collected. Hair roots are taken individually with tips not larger than 0.6- 0.7 mm. Because, using a wider tip during transplantation leaves scar. The hair follicles are not collected individually in FUT technique. Instead, after the scalp is cut in the operating room, the hair follicles are separated. Therefore, the FUT method is not recommended.
The hair follicles collected for transplantation should be transplanted immediately. Like all cells, hair roots are also alive. They need oxygen. Hair follicles get the oxygen / vitamin they need through red blood cells. The hair collected for transplantation should be transplanted as soon as possible. Otherwise, they would die without oxygen. Therefore, in the FUE method, the picking / implantation process is carried out several times. In other words, less hair roots are collected and immediately transplanted. This process is repeated as needed.
Eyebrow transplantation should be done at an angle of 25-30 degrees. Because, the eyebrows transplanted should not come upright. There may be problems faced by experts who do not have experience in this field. The problem most commonly encountered by doctors in this situation is the problem of upright growth. In order to avoid this problem, transplantation should be done at 25-30 degree angles.
THE PROCESS AFTER EYEBROW TRANSPLANTATION
Eyebrow transplantation is performed in office environment. The procedure is carried out under the supervision of a specialist doctor. Crusting with a size of needle tip may also be observed in the transplantation area for one week. However, the crusts are shed after a short time. Therefore, it does not constitute an obstacle to the daily life of the patient.
The person who has eyebrow transplantation should not be exposed to sunlight for two weeks. It is important to avoid environments such as sea and pool. In addition, it is recommended that the person who has eyebrow transplantation should not engage in intensive sports.
After the eyebrow transplantation, the eyebrow will reappear after 3 months in average. It takes the final shape within 7 to 8 months. Like in hair transplantation, shedding occurs after 15 days. Such shedding lasts for 3 months. At the end of this period, there is no shedding in the eyebrows transplanted.
In eyebrow transplantation, the hair collected from the nape grows within a shorter period. Patients are advised to cut the hair with a 15-day interval. At the end of the year, eyebrow emerge from the transplantation site. Then, growth speed slows down. This reduces the need for cutting and correction.
Eyebrow planting allows getting the most natural appearance possible. However, it is important that you get services from places with sufficient experience.
